    Pros

    Great learning place, lots of opportunities to learn various segments of business processes. Supportive team mates.

    Cons

    Too much negative feelings in the atmosphere. Employee satisfaction are surprisingly low. Benefits are second to none. High and repetitive workloads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to place more responsibilities to lower managements. Give more thought on employee's well-beings.

    I have been working at Asia Pulp & Paper full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. You got few good and smart people working with you and you will be able to learn a lot from them provided they are not harassed by headquarter
    2. Compensation and benefit could be very competitive if you join this company in the right time and right position
    3. Career opportunity could be possibly rewarding

    Cons

    1. Endless and ridiculous target setting from upper management could easily confuse employees
    2. Lots of repetitive pointless meeting with extremely short notice occupied all your time
    3. Reporting line is a mess
    4. Company culture is not friendly to new comer, orientation is nothing and training is surprisingly weak

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Recruit people you trust only and once they join trust them fully, delegation is everything for company with this size
    2. Stop all the micro-management activities immediately as it will only hamper subordinates' morale
    3. Do not promise much but once you do you follow through
    4. Performance comes from daily activities and work site, not from meeting room. Having meeting all day long generate not even one penny

    Pros

    Decent pay and housing package.

    Cons

    Not very encouraging to new comers.
    Company has low moral due to never ending target setting.
    Confusing directions from the top.
    Little guidance, would not recommend this company for one's first full time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should treat customers and employees with more respect and stop trying to cheat customers and employees.

    Pros

    Massive buying and production power
    $14 billion in sales volume
    The remuneration is fair

    Cons

    Horrific management style that continually changes at the whim of the overly aggressive owners.
    Its not the knowledge that you carry, its the B.S. that you spew that will get you anywhere in this company.
    There aren't any values associated with this company that many would look at this company for a long-term career. People in positions of power in the North American market should be held accountable...every year its the same old stories from the same old tired, worn out managers trying to save their jobs. Ex-professionals coming in as managers or VP's to markets because of 'favors' and produce nothing but turmoil and good stories of previous false achievements. If you truly want to take the market (like they say they do) reward the ones that bring you the business, not the ones with good stories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from knowledge, not from hearsay. The Asian model may be a good thing in the Asian markets, no doubt, it does not work in the North American markets. So to continually send people over to 'tell; us like it is' only creates an unproductive team that could produce double in North America

    Pros

    Good relationships with the US team, great product if you can wait 4 to 6 weeks if your lucky

    Cons

    To many to mention but APP NIngbo does not know the US market, they send in expensive unqualified people from corp and agencies to figure out what - but the answers are within the US sales team - IF they can hire people who know paperboard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been a part of APP going back to the late 1990's to 2013 either selling their product or working for them and they come to the US market not knowing and not listening, they will never capture more than 2 to 4% of the US market because you "must build for them to come" and not 7000 miles away
